July Favorites

I know I sound like a broken record at the end of every month, but I just can’t believe it’s already time to do a favorites post.


Last month, I talked about my bi-annual purchase of skin care and makeup products, and this month I’ve been leaning more towards workout gear.


I got these ASICS Women’s GEL-190 TR Cross-Training Shoe for my long walks as part of my goals this month. My older trainers weren’t giving me the support I needed in my arches, but these shoes made my feet feel so much better. So, I devoted these shoes to my walks only as to not wear them out too quickly, and my other shoes I use when I volunteer at the SPCA or work outside in the garden.

I wear yoga pants every day, practically. So, it would make sense that the yoga pants I’ve had for several years have finally worn out. It was time to replace them. These pants from Active are exact replacements for ones I already had. I also got them in black because I love how long they are.

These pants from ODODOS were a new buy, which I’m always hesitant to do once I’ve found something I love, but the reviews were great. These pants are so soft and they are extra long as well, which was a bonus.

I got this fold-up blanket by Rusee to use when we went to the Red, White and Boom celebration at the beginning of this month. It’s not a soft blanket, more like a soft plastic, but it stayed clean and was easy to fold back up when we were done (even in the dark).


And probably my favorite purchase this month was our new mattress. We tried one of the online foam mattresses called Tuft and Needle. It’s one of the more established companies. I might write a more detailed review of this later on since we have only had it for about a week, but I loved being able to order it on Amazon, a site I’m more familiar with. So far, we have loved it!  In the meantime, you can check out this really great review of this mattress as well as how it compared with similar mattresses on the market.

What are some things you have loved this month?

I also wanted to let you know that I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. These are all things I have used personally. I wouldn’t recommend something I haven’t tried myself. Thanks!

  1. My Perfect Breakdown

    I work from home so 90% of the time I’m in yoga pants. 🙂 If you have Lululemon around you, they are my absolute favourite. They aren’t cheap but they last forever and they are simply amazing!! It’s a Canadian brand that has some stores in the USA.
